About the Authors
I love the way Paul introduces himself in his letters, “Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus”, “Paul, a servant of Christ.” That’s how I want to be known. Lori, a servant of Jesus Christ. Lori, a follower of Jesus Christ. I’m passionate about serving God, building the kingdom, and making a difference in people’s lives. I love introducing people to the hope and wisdom in God’s Word and spurring them on to live it out in their everyday lives. I have found that many people, once they are saved, find themselves asking, “I’m saved, so now what?” I want to be that person in the “so now what.”
I’m a mom of three grown sons and a grandma of three granddaughters (who would have thunk?). When my boys were in their early teens, I found myself suddenly single again - and not by my choice. (We all have things that we wish weren’t part of our story.) I was unexpectedly a single mom, going back to work for the first time since my boys were born.
I studied for my M.Div. while my two oldest sons were in college and my youngest son was in high school. The boys would come home and say, “I have a paper due Friday” and I would say, “Me too!” Fun times. We celebrated three graduations in one week (my oldest had already graduated).
Serving Jesus is an adventure; full of challenges and unexpected turns in the road. Sometimes it's exciting; sometimes hard and scary; always more fulfilling than anyone could imagine.
